Re: Development Map and Chart

i'm beginning to become less worried that we'll ever build fast enough to actually cause a significant downturn.... Yup, i think we're safe. experts say Boston has taken over sole possession of the 9th place for largest Global financial centers – and we take forever to break ground on half of these projects...

China getting increasingly bullish on Boston's biotech sector....

An area of economic develoment often overlooked are Boston's medical campuses. For example; if the Longwood Medical Campus (straddling the Fenway and Mission Hill neighborhoods) were a state, it would rank 8th in the nation in Fed.gov research funding....

If all of this weren't enough, the density planned by the Walsh Administration for the next 10 years–is remarkable, by any standard. i'm told significant neighborhood planning is being kept under wraps. i believe we'll end up exceeding Walsh's call for 53,000 units–by thousands of units.

Re: Development Map and Chart

I'm surprised that Miami is denser then Chicago and Philadelphia. I've always thought of South Florida as car obsessed sprawl.

The City of Miami has even less land area than the City of Boston and more than 300 high-rise buildings. When you think about Miami Metro Area or certainly "South Florida" you are are thinking of much, much more than the City of Miami. The city proper is dense, but small. I'm not even sure it should be on that list of cities over 500,000 people because it comes up about 60,000 short. The Miami metro area, of course, is about 5.5 million.

^^True. i included it because their population has started ticking up again, and will cross over 500,000 by noon on Thursday. They also have some 90-95 highrises topped, u/c or in development.

Yep, borders are everything. Allston/Brighton is similar land area to Somerville (4.4 sq miles vs. 4.1) and population, so it has a similar density, but Somerville gets all the credit for being one of the densest cities in America because of borders.

This is an absolutely improper thing to do with census data. The census includes college students as residents of Cambridge.

I too am surprised by Miami. More surprisingly, is that several sections of LA are on the list.

Re: Development Map and Chart

Is the Miami Metro dense, though? Seems like it would be not.

I don't know that undergrads *always* are, but as an undergraduate (in another state) I was explicitly told to write down my dorm address as my permanent address. Makes sense from their point of view.

LA as a metro area is actually the densest in the country, believe it or not.

What?

I guess cause there are so many people and there are high-rise downtowns 40 miles from the core.

This must really depend on how you define metro area.

Per the wiki on highest population density, New York City (all boroughs) is the densest, with over 10,000 people per square mile.

No section of LA makes that cut. And LA as a city does not make the list (but parts are dense).

See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...lation_density

As whole cities, San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, Philly and Miami are all denser.

Re: Development Map and Chart

Metro areas are made up, estimated.... The Boston metro area has Worcester, Providence and I believe Manchester NH. Im sure some people drive from Providence but not many. Id say (again guessing) the true metro area is the 495 belt south to Plymouth and north to the NH line.

Re: Development Map and Chart

^^metros are measured in 3 ways.

city proper, msa, csa.

LA, Boston, and SF are challenging to measure and disambiguate against other metros.

People scratch their heads when comparing Boston, LA or SF to other metros.

Boston and SF have extremely high densities in their MSA's, where LA does not. Where LA actually has very high density over a very large area known as Greater Los Angeles (it's CSA)....

Re: Development Map and Chart

Hello, fellow netters.

I've been looking on the forum but not sure if we have it: a list / map of just residential developments inside "downtown Boston". Even better if it's just "luxury".

On here, there are different versions of things showing different things, but correct me if I'm wrong there's nothing like that?

I know I created a map five years ago with only residential development but I dread having to update it.

https://batchgeo.com/map/fa01204de3e...1200d3ddd78ce1

My request is in response to the hysteria right now online about how we're building luxury high-rises in downtown Boston so people can't afford to live in Hyde Park, or at least that's the claim.
